NYMAZ Ambassadors, as part of our Plugged In programme

As a NYMAZ Music Ambassador, you will be invited to your local meetings which take place around the county, gaining access to music industry professionals who can advise you on a range of different music careers, getting your music heard, where you can improve your music-making and loads more! These sessions will be taking place in three areas starting from January 2020! Sessions will be weekly, and you will work alongside professional musicians to develop skills and experience as a musician. You will then help shape the direction of the projects and make more music happen in your local area!

Professional Opportunity and Developments (PODs)

NYMAZ PODs will be groups of young people interested in developing and gaining experience in a range of different music industry roles. You can select which PODs you would like to join, and which roles in the Music Industry you would like to explore. Each POD will be offered the chance to take part in a mini four week course exploring the different roles, and then offered the opportunity to help support, develop and deliver their own projects, all whilst being mentored by an industry professional.

Have an idea for a music project or event? Bring along your ideas and NYMAZ might be able to help you make it happen! YOU will help shape the programme, and the way NYMAZ makes decisions, by contributing your ideas and opinions at the sessions, through online surveys and at events.

Your voice matters, and we want to hear it!
